Vazquez: 'Juve difficult for Real Madrid'

Real Madrid forward Lucas Vazquez is not happy about drawing Juventus in the Champions League. “They’ll make life difficult for us.”

The two giants already clashed in the Final last season, the Merengues eventually winning 4-1 in Cardiff after going into the break at 1-1.

They’ll meet again in the quarter-finals next month.

“Juve are a complicated rival to face, as they are an historic club in European football and will certainly make life difficult for us,” Vazquez told reporters at a sponsorship event.

“We want to do things right and get through this knockout round too.”

Real Madrid are under no illusions this’ll be a repeat of the Final in Cardiff.

“That was a different moment for both teams. Juve are in good shape now, they are top of Serie A and will certainly be tough,” added Vazquez.

“They have great players like Gigi Buffon, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.”
